Why Big "I" E&O?

Because not only does the program’s exclusive policy form provide market-leading coverage benefits, such as advertising activities and contractual liability, but a comprehensive loss prevention seminar is  available to help you avoid claims and improve business processes.

The Big “I” Risk Management website – E&O Happens (www.iiaba.net/eohappens) offers exclusive risk management information and tools to help agency staff of Swiss Re Corporate Solutions policyholders avoid E&O claims and improve business practices.

The Westport policy form contains exclusive enhancements available only to members that write their E&O through the Big "I" Professional Liability Program.
